Ohh no.. Bhutto was killed...

This is from Reuters:
Dec. 27 - Pakistan opposition leader Benazir Bhutto is dead at the age of 54 after being subject to a gun and bomb attack at a political rally in Pakistan.

As a Western educated woman in an Islamic society, and the first female Prime Minister of a Muslim country, Bhutto forged many new paths in a turbulent political career which spanned decades.

Karen Noack reports.

Ohh this so sad I always thought she was such a brave woman to stand up the way she did for what she belived in, in a world thats hard for a woman to have such a strong voice.. she knew her life was always constantly in dangour but she still fought for what she stands for..

I was shocked too, I even post as soon as I eard about it.
But as you say she knew she was constantly in danger, despite that she carried out her work.
I think she was a great woman, no matter her mistakes.
